I felt as if the author had written the book, keeping us introverts in mind. We, the ones, who are afraid to speak out our heart and battle our imaginary demons have been portrayed very well in Ghazal and Hamadan.
The whole "Destination Wedding " series has been a cracker
P.S. Now turn for Hamza please,
Ghazal has got to be one of my favourite fictional protagonists - she's bold yet shy, she's emotional yet so strong, she's passionate about relationships and wants to do the 'right' thing always, but not at the cost of her own self-respect and self-esteem. She's told day in and day out by her mother that she is disabled, but in her own eyes, she is just as capable as any other individual. Her beauty lies in her strength and Andaleeb brings that out beautifully.
Hamdaan is the embodiment of the typical 'perfect' Indian male, but he nurses a broken heart and is unable to let go of his past. But he is willing to give himself a second chance at love, at building a beautiful relationship and that's what redeems his aloofness and brusqueness in personality. He's respectful of Ghazal and endearing towards her too - but how does that eventually translate into fiery love?
Well, you have to read and find out!
Besides the central love story, I absolutely love the brother-sister bond as depicted by Andaleeb through Khalil and Ghazal. Such relationships are precious and their intertwining amidst a love story makes their importance stand out so much more.
Only You will make you swooooooonnnnn!
Andaleeb’s writing is open, unpretentious, and authentic. It feels like she’s writing the story of someone close to her. She reveals tiny details bit by bit, gradually making the picture clearer for the reader. This device kept me hooked throughout the book.
I loved the theme of two people, considered “damaged goods” by society, helping each other glue their broken pieces together. As characters, Ghazal and Hamdaan are flawed enough to be real people.
Ghazal’s brother and sister-in-law deserve special mention here as the only characters who mostly kept a cool head around the “scandals” that kept threatening to tear the family apart.
I thoroughly enjoyed Andaleeb’s version of boy-meets-girl, especially because most of the drama happens AFTER marriage, which complicates things because now there are families, egos, and emotions involved.
In conclusion, Only You takes turns being bitter, angsty, sweet, heartwarming, and spicy. It’s written with a refreshing focus on the girl’s state of mind and flux of emotions. And it celebrates the blossoming of love despite suffocating customs and rituals, prejudice, and misunderstanding.
(I received a copy of the book via Blogchatter with a request for an honest review.)
Gazal and Hamdaan are the characters which I feel we all could easily relate. The way story builds up and the twist is just hell intresting. They are such an adorable couple with their fears, poles apart characters and the chemistry they share. The story has everything love, trust, betrayal, truth, hurt and ever lasting love n relationship.
Every bit of this novel is pure love and commitment.
Also the author has beautifully crafted the sibling bond whether it's khalil n gazal or Hamdaan and Hamza it's just commendable.
Overall an excellent read. I enjoyed every word of it and I m sure you will enjoy it too.
Do it read guys, highly recommended 👍👍
